www.505performance.com sells turbos.

again, out of your price range.

As for other options, unless you can weld exhaust pipe, and can fabricate things, you're pretty much screwed.

you'd need to buy a SplitSecond computer: http://www.splitsec.com/
and bigger injectors, probably 30lbs or so, Mustang Cobra injectors work with a little adapter. Then you could either try out octanes by trial and error to find where you ping, or ideally, you'd get it dynotuned.

If you want something that WORKS, that's the price range. There is NO shortcut.
(unless you buy used)

Now, if you're handy, think you're pretty smart, and are willing to risk destroying your engine (without warranty) then go ahead and try make something at home.

There's a reason this stuff costs good money.

you'd need to weld up an entire exhaust, downtube from the stock header, route to the opposite side, then fabricate flanges and turbo mounts. then you'd need to weld turbo back exhaust tubing. you'd then need to pipe the high pressure oil line into the turbo, and pipe a remote oil cooler post turbo and drop the oil back into the oil pan. You'd need to pull the oil pan, drill a hole, and weld a bung on there.

proper turbo sizing is key, especially since you'll be routing the drive inlet pipe to the other side of the engine bay. You'd then need to fabricate an air intake for the turbo to the TB, and turbo to the outside air...preferably someplace elevated away from water/mud you might encounter off-road.

Thats the easy part. The hard part is the computer aspect. You need more fuel pressure & more fuel, which means larger injectors and possibly a larger fuel pump, or a secondary fuel pump. You'd then need to buy a SplitSecond piggyback computer, cut your factory wiring harness apart and splice the SplitSecond computer into it. You then need to tune the vehicle so that you're maintaining a good air/fuel ratio without pinging across the entire powerband - this means expensive dyno testing.

Then you've still got to deal with the fact that you've got a half-assed, underengineered piece of crap system on your Jeep that will easily blow up the engine, your axles or your transmission. I've ridden in a Jeep (and taken many pictures) with a homebrew hybrid 505 Performance system, I'd spend the $5000 for the real deal.
